I'm so excited to release my brand new CD "Words" this coming March. It features my own compositions using poems by Canadian poets Tim Bowling, Laura Lush, Carole Langille, as well as the great English poet William Wordsworth, and lyricists Melissa Mansfield, Lloyd and Ted Tosoff. This is a departure from my previous work – and is the first time I've written music with words!
The release will be at the Music Gallery in Toronto on March 10, and the Jazz Room in Kitchener-Waterloo on March 11. With Felicity Williams on voice, Alex Goodman on guitar, Jon Maharaj on Bass, Morgan Childs on drums, Drew Jureka on violin, and Andrew Downing on cello.

I had such a great fall playing a bunch of fun gigs with the fabulous Emilie-Claire Barlow and company – including a few dates with full orchestras. I'm super excited to playing her music from her latest CD "Clear Day" at Massey Hall on Feb 10 (FYI the fantastic Chris Donnelly is the pianist on the record!)
